After thinking that I blew my application for graduation and that I wouldn’t be getting the piece of paper until next May, I called the school today (to get my password reset) and asked politely about December graduation.
Secretary: “No, we only have a May graduation but you are on the list.”
Me: “For 2005, OK.”
Sec: “No, 2004, we just got the approval. You’re on it.”
Me: (Speechless for ten seconds). “So, I’m graduating in less than two weeks?”
Sec: “Yes, is that OK?”
This is, of course, just days after I told my mom that May 15th was wide open for her now. Guess I better start cleaning the house up…. 🙂
